The kids are back in school (as evidenced by the collective “Hooray!” from moms and dads nationwide). Even though my own “Little Watermelon” is still three years away from kindergarten, now is a good time to feature a few kid-friendly/lunchbox-friendly watermelon recipes.
This first recipe is for watermelon kebabs. It’s just watermelon, turkey, and cheese, but it makes a great lunch or after-school snack. Feel free to substitute ham for the turkey or skip the meat entirely. In place of the meat, you can add cucumber or another type of fruit.
18 1-inch cubes of seedless watermelon
6 cubes of smoked turkey breast
6 cubes of cheddar cheese
6 coffee stirrers or beverage straws
Place watermelon, turkey and cheese on stirrers or straws. Yup, it’s that easy.
